On this page, the deletion or merging of templates and modules, except as noted below, is discussed. To propose the renaming of a template or templates, use Wikipedia:Requested moves.

How to use this pageEdit

What not to propose for discussion hereEdit

The majority of deletion and merger proposals concerning pages in the template namespace and module namespace should be listed on this page. However, there are a few exceptions:

Stub templates
Stub templates and categories should be listed at Categories for discussion, as these templates are merely containers for their categories, unless the stub template does not come with a category and is being nominated by itself.
Userboxes
Userboxes should be listed at Miscellany for deletion, regardless of the namespace in which they reside.
Speedy deletion candidates
If the template clearly satisfies a criterion for speedy deletion, tag it with a speedy deletion template. For example, if you wrote the template and request its deletion, tag it with {{Db-author}}.
Policy or guideline templates
Templates that are associated with particular Wikipedia policies or guidelines, such as the speedy deletion templates, cannot be listed at TfD separately. They should be discussed on the talk page of the relevant guideline.
Template redirects
List at Redirects for discussion.

Reasons to delete a templateEdit

  1. The template violates some part of the template namespace guidelines, and can't be altered to be in compliance.
  2. The template is redundant to a better-designed template.
  3. The template is not used, either directly or by template substitution (the latter cannot be concluded from the absence of backlinks), and has no likelihood of being used.
  4. The template violates a policy such as Neutral point of view or Civility and it can't be fixed through normal editing.

Templates should not be nominated if the issue can be fixed by normal editing. Instead, you should edit the template to fix its problems. If the template is complex and you don't know how to fix it, WikiProject Templates may be able to help.

Templates for which none of these apply may be deleted by consensus here. If a template is being misused, consider clarifying its documentation to indicate the correct use, or informing those that misuse it, rather than nominating it for deletion. Initiate a discussion on the template talk page if the correct use itself is under debate.

Listing a templateEdit

To list a template for deletion or merging, follow this three-step process. The use of Twinkle (explained below) is strongly recommended, as it automates and simplifies these steps. Note that the "Template:" prefix should not be included anywhere when carrying out these steps (unless otherwise specified).

Step Instructions
I: Tag the template. Add one of the following codes to the top of the template page:

Note:

  • If the template nominated is inline, do not add a newline between the TfD notice and the code of the template.
  • If the template to be nominated for deletion is protected, make a request for the TfD tag to be added, by posting on the template's talk page and using the {{editprotected}} template to catch the attention of administrators or Template editors.
  • For templates designed to be substituted, add <noinclude>...</noinclude> around the TfD notice to prevent it from being substituted alongside the template.
  • Do not mark the edit as minor.
  • Use an edit summary like
    Nominated for deletion; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]]
    or
    Nominated for merging; see [[Wikipedia:Templates for discussion#Template:name of template]].
  • Before saving your edit, preview your edit to ensure the Tfd message is displayed properly.

Multiple templates: If you are nominating multiple related templates, choose a meaningful title for the discussion (like "American films by decade templates"). Tag every template with {{subst:Tfd|heading=discussion title}} or {{subst:Tfm|name of other template|heading=discussion title}} instead of the versions given above, replacing discussion title with the title you chose (but still not changing the PAGENAME code).

Related categories: If including template-populated tracking categories in the TfD nomination, add {{Catfd|template name}} to the top of any categories that would be deleted as a result of the TfD, this time replacing template name with the name of the template being nominated. (If you instead chose a meaningful title for a multiple nomination, use {{Catfd|header=title of nomination}} instead.)

TemplateStyles pages: The above templates will not work on TemplateStyles pages. Instead, add a CSS comment to the top of the page:

/* This template is being discussed in accordance with Wikipedia's deletion policy. Help reach a consensus at its entry: https://en-wiki.kfd.me/wiki/Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2023_February_3#Template:template_name.css */
II: List the template at TfD. Follow this link to edit today's TfD log.

Add this text to the top of the list:

  • For deletion: {{subst:Tfd2|template name|text=Why you think the template should be deleted. ~~~~}}
  • For merging: {{subst:Tfm2|template name|other template's name|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

If the template has had previous TfDs, you can add {{Oldtfdlist|previous TfD without brackets|result of previous TfD}} directly after the Tfd2/Catfd2 template.

Use an edit summary such as
Adding [[Template:template name]].

Multiple templates: If this is a deletion proposal involving multiple templates, use the following:

{{subst:Tfd2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be deleted. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ). Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

If this is a merger proposal involving more than two templates, use the following:

{{subst:Tfm2|template name 1|template name 2 ...|with=main template (optional)|title=meaningful discussion title|text=Why you think the templates should be merged. ~~~~}}

You can add up to 50 template names (separated by vertical bar characters | ), plus one more in |with=. |with= does not need to be used, but should be the template that you want the other templates to be merged into. Make sure to include the same meaningful discussion title that you chose before in Step 1.

Related categories: If this is a deletion proposal involving a template and a category populated solely by templates, add this code in the |text= field of the Tfd2 template but before the text of your rationale:

{{subst:Catfd2|category name}}
III: Notify users. Please notify the creator of the template nominated (as well as the creator of the target template, if proposing a merger). It is helpful to also notify the main contributors of the template that you are nominating. To find them, look in the page history or talk page of the template. Then, add one of the following:

to the talk pages of the template creator (and the creator of the other template for a merger) and the talk pages of the main contributors. It is also helpful to make any interested WikiProjects aware of the discussion. To do that, make sure the template's talk page is tagged with the banners of any relevant WikiProjects; please consider notifying any of them that do not use Article alerts.

Multiple templates: There is no template for notifying an editor about a multiple-template nomination: please write a personal message in these cases.

Consider adding any templates you nominate for TfD to your watchlist. This will help ensure that the TfD tag is not removed.

After nominating: Notify interested projects and editorsEdit

While it is sufficient to list a template for discussion at TfD (see above), nominators and others sometimes want to attract more attention from and participation by informed editors. All such efforts must comply with Wikipedia's guideline against biased canvassing.

To encourage participation by less experienced editors, please avoid Wikipedia-specific abbreviations in the messages you leave about the discussion, link to any relevant policies or guidelines, and link to the TfD discussion page itself. If you are recommending that a template be speedily deleted, please give the criterion that it meets.

Notifying related WikiProjectsEdit

WikiProjects are groups of editors that are interested in a particular subject or type of editing. If the article is within the scope of one or more WikiProjects, they may welcome a brief, neutral note on their project's talk page(s) about the TfD. You can use {{Tfdnotice}} for this.

Tagging the nominated template's talk page with a relevant Wikiproject's banner will result in the template being listed in that project's Article Alerts automatically, if they subscribe to the system. For instance, tagging a template with {{WikiProject Physics}} will list the discussion in Wikipedia:WikiProject Physics/Article alerts.

Notifying substantial contributors to the templateEdit

While not required, it is generally considered courteous to notify the good-faith creator and any main contributors of the template and its talkpage that you are nominating for discussion. To find the creator and main contributors, look in the page history or talk page.

At this point, you've done all you need to do as nominator. Sometime after seven days have passed, someone else will either close the discussion or, where needed, "relist" it for another seven days of discussion. (That "someone" may not be you, the nominator.)

Once you have submitted a template here, no further action is necessary on your part. If the nomination is successful it will be added to the Holding Cell until the change is implemented. There is no requirement for nominators to be part of the implementation process, but they are allowed to if they so wish.

Also, consider adding any templates you nominate to your watchlist. This will help ensure that your nomination tag is not mistakenly or deliberately removed.

TwinkleEdit

Twinkle is a convenient tool that can perform many of the posting and notification functions automatically, with fewer errors and missed steps than manual editing. Twinkle does not notify WikiProjects, although many of them have automatic alerts. It is helpful to notify any interested WikiProjects that don't receive alerts, but this has to be done manually.

DiscussionEdit

Anyone can join the discussion, but please understand the deletion policy and explain your reasoning.

People will sometimes also recommend subst or subst and delete and similar. This means the template text should be "merged" into the articles that use it. Depending on the content, the template page may then be deleted; if preserving the edit history for attribution is desirable, it may be history-merged with the target article or moved to mainspace and redirected.

Templates are rarely orphaned—that is, removed from pages that transclude them—before the discussion is closed. A list of open discussions eligible for closure can be found at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Old unclosed discussions.

Closing discussionEdit

Administrators should read the closing instructions before closing a nomination. Note that WP:XFDcloser semi-automates this process and ensures all of the appropriate steps are taken.

Current discussionsEdit

February 2Edit

Template:Club Atlético Zacatepec squadEdit

club is not active; no need for current squad template Joeykai (talk) 23:26, 2 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:Canadian party colourEdit

Propose merging Template:Canadian party colour with Template:Party color.
I have just come across this template, and others relating to it, and believe that its content can be merged into the widely-used "party colour" template. I understand that some users may be hesitant towards using the widely-used one, but it makes things simpler and memorable, instead of if there were party colour templates for each and every country. ValenciaThunderbolt (talk) 22:33, 2 February 2023 (UTC)

Support idea but not as proposed. Eventhough the name of Template:Canadian party colour suggests it returns a color, that is in fact, not true, as it has multiple options it can return, including a color. The color template is actually Template:Canadian party colour/colour. That said, I agree that handling all information in Module:Political party is correct. This just means that any handling of this template will need additionaly to decouple the usages of this template into the more standard Party x family of templates that are used for other countries. Gonnym (talk) 22:42, 2 February 2023 (UTC)
Comment. This merger proposal has pretty much broken tons of page this template is used on such as List of prime ministers of Canada. Given that thousands of pages are affected by this template, is there anything we can do so it continues to render properly with the tag? —WildComet talk 23:48, 2 February 2023 (UTC)
Comment. All pages using this template are now broken because of the merger proposal. Suggest rolling back the template page for the duration of the discussion. Kiwichris (talk) 00:05, 3 February 2023 (UTC)
Oppose: Despite what the template is named, it does much more than simply return a colour: it's also instrumental in the formating of election results tables, and even used to generate party names for infoboxes. Even the colour return is a bit more complicated than it initially appears, since it's also used to generate colours for common historical non-party designations, which often come in various permutations — sure, you could have Template:Party colour make Labour candidates and parties in Canada return the label "Labour" and the colour pink, but Template:Canadian party colour allows Wikipedia to preserve the precise name they ran under (which could be "Labour", or "Farmer-Labour, "Independent Labour", "Federated Labour", etc). As such, this proposal isn't as simple as just replacing one template with another; the way Template:Canadian party colour is used would require large changes to huge numbers of pages, changes that I imagine go beyond simple automation. I can see that, sure, it may not have been the ideal to have a country-specific template, or to set it up like this, but why fix what isn't broken? — Kawnhr (talk) 00:10, 3 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:LefticonEdit

No transclusions, categories, or incoming links from discussions. The template appears to put the first unnamed parameter inside div tags, which does not seem particularly useful and does not appear to match the template's name. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:58, 2 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:FC Edmonton squadEdit

team is not active; no need for current squad template Joeykai (talk) 05:54, 2 February 2023 (UTC)

  • Note: This discussion has been included in WikiProject Football's list of association football-related page discussions. GiantSnowman 20:33, 2 February 2023 (UTC)

February 1Edit

Template:TopicwpphilEdit

Old test page, originally intended for WikiProject philosophy in 2008 but never fully implemented. requested to take to TfD instead of CSD due to age. - car chasm (talk) 21:02, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

  • Delete per nomination. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 23:19, 1 February 2023 (UTC)
  • Comment: This template appears to have been working reasonably well. It was removed by the nominator from pages it had been used in, in edits like this. – Jonesey95 (talk) 06:07, 2 February 2023 (UTC)
    It was apparently intended to link Category talk pages together, part of a project of some sort abandoned by its creator in 2008, several years before they stopped editing. It was only used on two pages, and everyone in Wikiproject philosophy just uses the main project talk page, but there are plenty of other templates that link various philosophy articles together. - car chasm (talk) 07:48, 2 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:1984 Summer Olympics Yugoslavia men's football team rosterEdit

unused after being merged with the parent article with attribution. Frietjes (talk) 19:25, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:1952 Summer Olympics men's basketball game A1Edit

unused after being merged with the parent article with attribution. Frietjes (talk) 15:41, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:LowresEdit

This template for use in File: space appears to be redundant to {{Non-free use rationale album cover}} or {{Non-free video cover}} or {{Non-free album cover}}. I admit that I do not understand the differences among all of these fair-use rationale templates, but this one, created in 2007 and used on only four pages, does not appear to have kept up with modern usage. – Jonesey95 (talk) 08:02, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

  • Delete - This template is outdated and redundant to the non-free use rationale templates noted in the nomination. Of the four files that use this template, three of the files also have a standard non-free use rationale template. I added a non-free use rationale template to the fourth file so deletion of this template will not cause any issues with a missing rationale on any of these files. -- Whpq (talk) 21:29, 1 February 2023 (UTC)
  • Delete per nomination. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 23:21, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:Election box candidate ranked choice with party linkEdit

No transclusions. Template is marked as obsolete. – Jonesey95 (talk) 07:38, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:IntellectualismEdit

Ill-defined template with no clear purpose, parent article Intellectualism is an unfocused stub that only cites dictionary entries and two seemingly unrelated subtopics, and template appears to be about multiple different topics that happen to share the same word. - car chasm (talk) 04:37, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

  • Keep Connects articles on the subject. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 23:22, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:Disenchantment (TV series)Edit

Only links four articles other than the main one, navbox is not needed. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 20:28, 24 January 2023 (UTC)

  • I have to agree, since there's a Disenchantment category, which is much more useful than the navbox at this point anyhow. Historyday01 (talk) 22:33, 24 January 2023 (UTC)
  • Keep. 5 valid links seems fine for a navbox. Gonnym (talk) 12:59, 25 January 2023 (UTC)

Template:LEN Champions League Performance by clubsEdit

Formerly single-use that has been substituted on European Cup, Euroleague and LEN Champions League records and statistics. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 23:54, 31 January 2023 (UTC)

Template:IDF Enlisted ranksEdit

Unused. More detailed charts exist on Israel Defense Forces ranks. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 23:52, 31 January 2023 (UTC)

Template:Finch Central LRTEdit

Had added it to the Line 6 Finch West article before removal. According to the edit summary that the Central line has not been announced possibly making this an OR route. As stated on the article "none of the proposed extensions have been funded for design or construction". WikiCleanerMan (talk) 23:41, 31 January 2023 (UTC)

Keep. This section of the line is not OR, it was part of the original Transit City plan. The stops marked in the template can be seen in the image in this article.[1] BLAIXX 02:44, 1 February 2023 (UTC)
Well, should we add it back and have a section about the Central line? --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 22:17, 1 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:Family of Michelle Robinson ObamaEdit

Replaced usages as a navbox with the Michelle Obama navbox I created which does a better job of connecting articles of family members than a tree chart using the navbox parameter with transclusion. Substituted this on the main article on the Obama family and works better as an inline collapsible chart instead of a bloated template. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 23:24, 31 January 2023 (UTC)

Template:Obama family treeEdit

Substituted this with credit given to the creator on the Family of Barack Obama article. Was single-use and works better as an inline collapsible chart instead of a bloated template. WikiCleanerMan (talk) 23:21, 31 January 2023 (UTC)

Template:1952 Summer Olympics men's water polo game E1-1Edit

unused after being merged with the parent article with attribution. Frietjes (talk) 15:23, 31 January 2023 (UTC)

Template:Computable knowledgeEdit

Navigation box based on WP:OR and with no main article (Computable knowledge does not exist). The "Proposals and implementations" section is particularly arbitrary; it includes everything from Dewey Decimal Classification to Incompleteness theorem to Wikipedia. –LaundryPizza03 (d) 22:48, 10 January 2023 (UTC)

  • Delete per nomination. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 01:49, 11 January 2023 (UTC)
  • Keep. I agree that the "Proposals and implementations" needs to be trimmed down and focused. However, the template is clearly deemed useful (as its usage in several articles attests), and the fact that there is no "computable knowledge" article is merely a reflection of the myriad of topics that are closely related to that concept, which should indeed be organized in a disambiguation page. In fact, I've gone ahead and created it. --Waldyrious (talk) 11:20, 11 January 2023 (UTC)
  • Keep: The template is based on Stephen Wolfram's "The Quest for Computable Knowledge" as mentioned on its talk page. In fact, and contra the nomination, this navbox is much less WP:OR than most navboxes, given that it was derived largely from a single source. Biogeographist (talk) 13:36, 11 January 2023 (UTC)

  • Delete. This is more or less a grabbag apparently sourced to one specific author's opinion on things that go together related to computation and knowledge. It fails numbers 2-4 at WP:NAVBOX and I think #5 is arguable as well. Izno (talk) 07:45, 27 January 2023 (UTC)

Template:Country data South AmericaEdit

There is no flag of South America. Currently the template shows the flag of the Union of South American Nations, an organization formed by four South American countries (in the past, it comprised most but not all of South America), so this is not an appropiate flag to represent the whole continent. When the template was created, it used this file, an unofficial and unused proposal, which is also unsuitable.

Template:Khulna-Mongla Port lineEdit

{{Khulna-Mongla Port line}} (with hyphen) is used; {{Khulna–Mongla Port line}} (with en-dash) is the unused one. Useddenim (talk) 03:48, 30 January 2023 (UTC)

Merge both. We have templates for the same line. We can merge them. Mehedi Abedin 03:55, 30 January 2023 (UTC)
If one of the Khulna–Mongla templates is to be kept, it should be the one with the dash (not hyphen) in the title, per MOS. The hyphenated template should be redirected to the merge target. Content from whichever template is better should end up at the merge target. – Jonesey95 (talk) 05:58, 30 January 2023 (UTC)
@Jonesey95: The correct content is at hyphen, so it should be moved to Ndash and become a redirect. I think that might require an admin for the WP:HISTMERGE? Useddenim (talk) 01:01, 2 February 2023 (UTC) Useddenim (talk) 01:01, 2 February 2023 (UTC)

Template:Turco-MongolEdit

Propose merging Template:Turco-Mongol with Template:Mongol Empire.
I propose merging Template:Turco-Mongol (created in 2020) into Template:Mongol Empire (created in 2007). They already largely overlap, and I think the content in Template:Turco-Mongol (which essentially has Turco-Mongol tradition, i.e. the political and cultural legacy of the Mongol Empire, as its subject) can easily be explained in the context of Template:Mongol Empire. A merger would not cause any template-size problems (because it is autocollapsible) or weighting problems in Template:Mongol Empire. Nederlandse Leeuw (talk) 15:52, 29 January 2023 (UTC)
